We all have a "tell" but not many of us know what it is. For me when I feel my anxiety/depression lurking on the edges I stop reading. It has taken me many years of self exploration and self help to gather my tool box. What happened is life got busy and I ignored the "tell". Busy, with big people things...not busy with fun crafting stuff....but crafting does get affected and I am more disorganized. Well, it was time to address the "tell"...start doing things that will make my soul happy. First was finding the perfect book to blow my book desert out of the water...and I found it...although I am not done I can't wait for the next chapter after I finished one. A mystery set in Ireland...yummm.
Next was spending time with the little man...to look at the world through his eyes is a blessing...back to the basics. He decided he needed a walking stick, so he found one. He and G sanded and stained it for the next hike.
Children really do give you perspective on what really counts and to take moments to be one with nature.
This time of year my parents are more present...this month was dad's birthday and next is mom's. They were hard workers and all about family. When I was little my dad and I used to row around in a friends row boat and my dad would share his dream of owning a sailboat...both of them were proactive in making their dream a reality. This photo of them in their first sailboat was featured in Sunset Magazine.
So when the Fatquarter Shop revealed the Sail Away SAL it was a slam dunk...oh yeah...I was onboard before the sails were lifted! I am so excited about this one because I have decided to decorate a room in my house as an ode to my parents and the love of the ocean! Join me if you are interested!!!
and work on a plan!
